When we adopted our little boy (as a 2year old) we were told that he would probably never finish school and maybe never even learn to talk. Today he graduated from university with a masters degree and can talk the socks off anyone. He has also brought lots of joy and laughter into our lives and the lives of many others. I am so glad we took a chance on him and he on us. You just never know.smile

What a lovely positive post. Well done to you for raising such a wonderful son.
You have every right to be proud.

( we were told dd1 would need speech therapy and feeding therapy, within 4 weeks of her being home she was eating us out of house and home and non stop talking )

Fantastic! Great to read about older children who were adopted and have done so well. A proud day for you.
